Tomatoes and ulcers?

My doctor said to avoid tomato sauce because I may have an ulcer, does anyone know if that would include a raw or cooked tomato? I am assuming yes.

Update:

I am super through, my doctor RUSHED me. I am looking for a new doctor.

    I am also assuming yes.  Raw and cooked tomatoes are both acidic, and will aggravate your ulcer.

    Tomatoes and tomato products in general have a lot of acid and all forms should be avoided while you have ulcer issues.

    Its the acidity in the tomatoes, cooked ones are usually less acidic, though when I cook canned tomatoes, I add a pinch of sugar to counteract the acid.

    Tomatoes in any form are acidic and would be problematic.  No tomatoes.

    tomatoes in general, are highly acidic--raw and cooked, I would avoid them.

    IT is probably the citric acid in tomatoes. He probably also said to avoid oranges, lemons, etc. And the acid is in both raw and cooked.

    Why would you think you should avoid tomatoes? If the doctor had meant that he'd have said avoid tomatoes, not tomato sauce.

    I would assume your doctor was referring to tomato sauces containing vinegar or some other kind of acid. 

    I'd have asked for a lot more information and guidance.
